But it is usually depends on the designer’s experiences or the process of trial-and-error to approach the design fitting the requirements of product through many trials. For high precision or complex product the designer may not find out the cooling channel layout fulfilling the design requirements
In recently years, the computer-aided engineering (CAE) has been generally applied in product development for various fields. It contributes for enhancing design ability of complicated and high precision product. The purpose of this study is to find out the optimal arrangement of cooling channels of injection molding by integration of the glowworm swarm algorithm for optimization search and the Moldflow software for injection molding analysis. In order to verify the architecture and performance of optimization program using Glowworm Swarm Optimization (GSO), several test functions are utilized to check the accuracy and execution efficiency of developed program. Then the developed GSO program was integrated with Moldflow software in optimization of cooling channel locations. From the results of case study, it was shown that the cooling channel design system implemented in this study could offer designer with different options in selection the arrangement of cooling channels for injection molding. The developed architecture can enhance the efficiency of cooling channel design, upgrade product quality, lower development cost and increase economic benefits.
